Have been coming here since I was a child, when it first opened in the early 1980's. Although in central Bristol, you could be on the edge of a small town. And in a way St Werburghs is. A vibrant, individual part of Bristol. The farm is a big part of the community. You can see Ducks, Sheep, Pigs, Rabbits... More

We visited lots when the children were small, we went again last week (they're now 7 and 5) and it was noticeable that we whizzed round. I think that s only natural and not a reflect of St Werburghs. It is small but there are some lovely animals to pet and if you have small children, say under 5, you... More

Went there with 2 toddlers and though only small setting managed to get a good couple of hours, staff were friendly and kids loved the fact they could feed the goats and sheep, food pellets £1 a bag. Would be great to see more animals but with such a small setting understand why not so many. Parking is a bit... More

This enterprise is an attraction mainly for children. It has a few goats with their kids, chickens, ducks, and piglets in small, fenced-off enclosures. It is slowly developing with the help of volunteers. A reception area with what may soon be a cafeteria has recently been built. There is a pub -The Farm (qv) - close by for lunch time... More

The pub next door wasn't serving puddings so we came here for coffee and cake. It is a lovely little place but the coffee was weak and a tasteless; cakes were OK but the apple pie had a soggy bottom. Our experience could have been better and it wasn't particularly good value, despite that we liked it enough to try... More

On a bright bank holiday afternoon this was just what we needed! A lovely little oasis in the city with charming farm animals. The goats and sheep can be fed with pellets purchased from the office which was great fun, there are also plants for sale as well as a cafe which I've heard good things about but was closed... More

Interesting little cafe with tasty food on one of the city bike trails so it's handy for visitors to Bristol who would never find it otherwise. Did take a bit long to get the food but it was enjoyed!

Hi There, I am sorry you had a bad experience in St Werburghs. It sounds very unlike this area which is well known for its vibrant, colourful and friendly 'village' feel. I would be very interested to know when you came and what time of day it was so that we can monitor any antisocial behaviour. If you can, please... More

Lovely little find. The kids loved the animals, and the play area was great. The crowning bit was the cafe though. The selection was great. I had a goats cheese and broccoli bake / crumble and it was superb. One of the best lunches I've ever tasted. Always a fan of free water being offered too.

Glad you had a great time - please come back soon. We have two new goat kids that are entertaining the crowds. And the Café menu is seasonal so will offer something new More

Great fun for small children, with pigs, sheep, goats, rabbits and chickens. It is quite small but little children will enjoy it. There is a strangely shaped cafe opposite where you can get refreshments and snacks.

Glad you enjoyed your visit. Pop into the Farm next time you come as we have a few trail leaflets that will extend your visit by getting the kids to discover hidden parts of the site, and if you want, send you on a walking trail over Narroways Nature Reserve - if you haven't been there before, you will love...
